Jim Sorgi will back up Manning... the one in New York

It took Jim Sorgi three days to land another job backing up another Manning. Today, the NY Giants signed Sorgi as their back-up quarterback behind Eli Manning, the younger brother of Sorgi's former teammate in Indianapolis, Peyton Manning. Sorgi was drafted by the Colts in the 6th Round of the 2004 draft and has worked as the #2 quarterback since then. He was released March 5th.

As far as back-ups go, you can do a lot worse than Sorgi. He's smart and he can process information quickly. His major stumbling block is his lack of arm strength.

We wish Jim the best in his new job holding a clipboard for baby brother.
